July 11, 2013—Heather Timmons has joined Quartz as Asia Correspondent, based in Hong Kong, it was announced today by Quartz Editor-in-Chief Kevin J. Delaney. Her appointment is effective July 15.

 Timmons joins Quartz from The New York Times where she was based in London and New Delhi, and covered mergers and acquisitions, high-flying bankers, the private equity boom, and terrorism, as well as writing for Travel and Styles. In 2011 she co-founded and ran “India Ink,” the paper’s first-ever country specific news journal, which provided more in-depth news and analysis of the world’s largest democracy, and of India’s global diaspora. “India Ink” grew to a monthly audience of close to one million unique visitors online and substantially expanded the paper’s readership in India.

Timmons began writing about banking and finance as a reporter with the Daily Deal and the American Banker. 
 
“Heather’s a world-class, entrepreneurial journalist with experience covering business and finance from Europe, Asia, and the US,” said Delaney. “With her arrival, Quartz is continuing to invest in the high-quality, unique content that millions of people are reading each month and sharing with their friends and colleagues.”
